Salon boat rental Amsterdam

Want to get to know Amsterdam in a different way? Then you can rent a salon boat in Amsterdam. With your own skipper and hostess, you can cruise the Amsterdam canals fully catered and worry-free. For larger parties, we have luxury saloon boats that cruise the IJ and Amstel rivers.

Taking a salon boat through Amsterdam

You can rent a salon boat alone, but if you want to add an extra twist to a fun afternoon, you can also choose one of our packages. For example, go for a Dinner Cruise with food prepared by our chefs, choose an afternoon of appetizers combined with a beer or wine tasting or just stick to a cocktail afternoon. The possibilities are endless. Instead of exploring Amsterdam on foot and having lunch or dinner in one place, you can do so while sailing and admire Amsterdam from the water.

Salon boat options

We currently offer four different salon boats for different group sizes. Choose the Bredero or the Multatuli for a party of up to 60 and 65 people. If you are with a smaller party, for example with your sports team or with your family, you can choose the Najade for up to 18 people. You can rent this luxury saloon boat in all seasons, possibly combined with a Tapas Buffet Cruise or BBQ Boat Amsterdam. Finally, we offer the “Cheers of St. John. This beautiful salon boat can accommodate up to 40 people and offers you all the luxury you need to have a relaxing afternoon on the water with your closest friends, family or colleagues.

Historic salon boats

Once, saloon boats were meant for stately trips past castles and estates or a Sunday trip to church. Nowadays, a salon boat is used as an atmospheric alternative to a canal cruise with small or larger groups. Amsterdam’s canals lend themselves perfectly to a trip on a salon boat. We are the specialist in salon boats. Salon boat rental Amsterdam is available at Rederij de Nederlanden.
